JAKARTA, AUGUST 31, 2018 –  PT Dharma Satya Nusantara Tbk (“Company”, “DSNG”) today published the Consolidated Financial Statements as of 30 June 2018 with a limited review.

In the first semester of 2018, the Company recorded revenue of Rp 2.1 trillion, a decrease of 20% compared to the same period last year. The decline was mainly due to lower revenue from the palm oil segment as a result of the low production of Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) and the weakening of CPO prices during the first six months of this year.

The palm oil segment contributes around 79% of the Company's total revenue, the rest from the wood product segment. The Company booked palm oil revenue in the first half of this year around Rp 1.7 trillion, 26% lower compared to the same period last year, while revenue from the wood product segment rose by 15% to Rp 452 billion.
